Uneasy Calm


As spring mellows into summer, Elanthia has settled into an uneasy calm. Abundant crops ripen in the fields, untouched by Asketi's capricious scythe. The people are hale and hearty, as if Ushnish is occupied elsewhere, and ships shelter safe in harbors untouched by Drogor's wrath. Almost everywhere there is prosperity -- yet a sense of dread lurks beneath it all, as if the world is teeters on the precipice of some great, unknown calamity

Moon Mages whisper of disturbing visions. Clerics both Dark and Light cry out to their patrons for succor or shelter or some glimpse of what is to come. For the first time in recent memory, the Sisters of the Ru'atin Peri'el have left their enclave on Aesry Surlaenis'a, seeking answers. So sun sets on another prosperous day, and the world waits for the blow to fall.

Night settles across the lands, bringing a cooling respite from the day's fetid heat. From Velaka's sultry deserts to the Forfedhdar's rough outposts, the people of Elanthia seek out their beds, hoping for solace from the day's cares.

In the darkness, men and women still fight and die, heedless of the hour. The Cleric falls bravely, driving undead back from town and village, knowing he will live and die again and again in this same unending quest. The Barbarian hurls a war-cry into the teeth of his foes, knowing that Kuniyo or Trothfang or Everild will uphold the one whose fury burns the hottest. Others plot and scheme by candlelight. But mostly, people sleep – or try to.

A terrible tension has settled across Elanthia. Children writhe and thrash in sweat-drenched sheets, cry out and struggle with their bedclothes, all without waking. Adults are tormented no less, dreams absurd and banal alike subtly twisted into the stuff of horror. A susurrus of moans and inarticulate cries of fear settles across the land like the putrid odor of a gangrenous limb.

The land is gripped by nocturnal misery; a plague of nightmares. Yet even the wakeful are not spared -- in the night, the sleepless whisper tales of unnatural things moving, half-glimpsed creatures perverse and terrible...

The Sky Darkens

Deep in the forests of Ker'leor in the shrine of Dergati, a dark chrysalis lurked, gleaming silver and leaking strands of dark vapor. Those who interacted with it found that it somehow feasted upon spiritual energy, absorbing the experiences of those who came near it. It whispered in the dark to its visitors, but remained, changing little, for many years. All agreed that it was somehow related to the Lady of Nightmares, Dergati.

The powers in Therengia grew uneasy with its presence and placed a guard on the site, preventing pilgrims and the curious alike from strengthening the entity growing within it. Still it waited in the darkness, seemingly quiescent.

Then, one day, those guarding it were found dead. The chrysalis was gone. A collapsed tunnel, leading away, the only evidence that anything had ever been there at all.

Elsewhere, miners would disappear, only to reappear later missing their eyes and their sanity. The sisters of the Ru'atin Peri'el reported changes in Peri'el's song, and sent a representative, Tasrhhsu, to the mainland to investigate.

The people of Elanthia began reporting strange, nightmarish visions. Moon Mage Seers saw conflicting visions, most of them portending destruction and chaos.

In time, a new subterranean race of mole-like people, the Akul'tiz, emerged under a leader they call The First, Xitoccanemun. In the beginning they emerged only at night, but as summer wore on, they began to appear at other times.

Finally, the Sisters of the Ru'atin reported the unthinkable – Peri'el's song has ceased. Those Clerics who pray to Peri'el find their tongues torn from their mouths. Peri'el's altars no longer accept her sacrifices. Xitoccanemun claims that Peri'el is dead.

With Peri'el dead or incapacitated, the World Dragon has begun to stir. The Greater and Lesser Fists have erupted, destroying Tiv's Moon Mage guild and killing all those present within. The smoke and ash hurled skyward by the eruption has blocked out the sun, plunging Elanthia into endless night.

If Peri'el cannot be healed, the Dragon will surely wake, ending all life on Elanthia. Somewhere, Dergati is laughing.
